I Can.

I can break my own heart by being there
inside those lost tomorrows
where all my dreams left me

there tied with those longest strings of a time that I wanted so

But then there were rivers of dreams that came and tore me inside out

and life became a torment

for oh don’t you see
I can not let go
Even if those idle dreams keep me wrapped inside of all that never was.

That was supposed to read….keep an open mind….

A very nice write. I do hope that it doesn’t come from personal experience, but most poetry does. While free verse is not my favorite cup of tea, I always try to keep an open….what kind of a poet would I be if I didn’t?
